Who better to pilot a plane through a race called "Bandit Run"?

"Eastbound and down, loaded up and truckin',
We gonna do what they say can't be done.
We've got a long way to go, and a short time to get there,
I'm eastbound, just watch ol' bandit run!

Keep your foot hard on the pedal,
Son, never mind them brakes.
Let it all hang out 'cause we got a run to make...."

-Jerry Reed

Hopefully the bandit here can outrun Smokey (the opponent) on his run from Texarkana to Atlanta (through the course).

Burt's not the most reliable pilot. In keeping with the spirit of the film, I went for maximum speed over safety, and while I think the Bandit would approve, I also think it was a bad bet for this race. This ugly plane can go 1:08 on a perfect run, but it is very, VERY, likely that it will crash out in the first or second round- even if both planes have the same chance to crash, the faster plane is more likely to crash first. I guess that's the price to be paid for having "a complete lack of respect for the law"!

    @Pauciloquent I haven't seen it in years, either, but reading the words "bandit run" over and over made me think of it. Fun movie.

    @Nerdtronics Ha, thanks. I spent a lot of time playing this game about a year to year and a half ago, before people used modded parts a lot. I've had lots of practice trying to make fast, unmodded planes. Lots of cumulative trial and error.

    @Pauciloquent Haha. Burt Reynolds is the name of an actor who played a character called "the Bandit" in an old movie called Smokey and the Bandit. That's where the goofy name comes from.

    @ABC123 The fastest I got Burt Reynolds to go. . . . . that just sounds weird. . . was a 1:06 and it is hell to beat, made a racer I'm still working on that also goes 1:06 but A.I stability is difficult to achieve....

    @Pauciloquent @Whitakcr Thanks! It seems my luck ran out in the quarterfinals-it missed a bunch of rings and then crashed. Still, I thought that would happen in the first round, so I can't be upset. Fun tournament!
